FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 3, 2008 - Hyundai Motor America today announced sales of 20,820 for the month of October, a 31 percent decrease from October 2007 levels.
“We are experiencing one of the most challenging times in recent automotive history,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America’s vice president of national sales. “We are encouraged by the prospects for November. With the financial markets beginning to stabilize and the election behind us, we believe consumer confidence will be bolstered and prospects who have been on the sidelines during this period of uncertainty will re-emerge into the market to help fuel the economic engine. With some of the most fuel-efficient and standard safety equipped vehicles in the industry we feel we are well positioned to get back on track.”
